radio boise playlist for week of 12/25/06

Sit back, relax. Idle and cruise. The hard part's over.

If necessary, go through the motions of routine, secure in the knowledge that even on fumes you'll soon be gliding across the finish line and into the new year.

Full release, Happy Ending.

Maybe a couple of thises and thats still left to deal with, but gee, realistically it'll be - - oh, what... At least a few days before the grind really reasserts itself.

Exhale. Breathe. Repeat.

Hope you enjoyed this slightly passive set of tunes. As always: Any questions, comments about the music, hellos, whatever - - please click on that 'email me' link. Thanks!

So - - Is it a frenzy down to the last possible moment, or are things too far gone to make any difference in time?

Are these the only choices?

Here was another thick helping of Xmas cheer, jeer, and something else that rhymes. Blear, maybe...

Xmas time is almost over and done, for now. The preparations for X-'07 should be starting any moment now.

Until then, don't forget to breathe, don't forget to smile.

radio boise playlist for the evening of 12/13/06 - - Hey, something new! It was a LIVE show!

So - - Last Wednesday night I went in to the Radio Boise studio for some training on their sound board.

Just between you and me, the word on the street is that sometime in '07 the FCC might finally give the thumbs up for Radio Boise to hit the FM dial. In gearing up for that very exciting event, several of the DJs (including myself) are beginning to take the steps towards live broadcasting. Hopefully in the near future my current show will be supplanted by a live show that's oh-so much closer to the type of thing I've enjoyed constructing in the past.

My experience the other night was great fun; It's been - what? - ten months or so since my last show at KALX in Berkeley. Despite many clunky attempts at trying to understand the ins & outs of a set-up that's all new to me (or perhaps because of it) it was a great joy to once again be feeling the excitement and anxiety of live deejaying.

Hopefully it'll soon become a regular thing, and I'll start taking my shoes off and doing it right...

Down below is a listing of what went out on this little live show. If you have any questions or comments or suggestions, as always please feel no hesitation to click that 'Email me' link over to the right. Thanks again...

Maybe you love Christmas, maybe not.
Maybe you enjoy Christmas songs, maybe you don't.

Maybe you don't celebrate Christmas, in which case I don't envy you if you'd hope to avoid getting it rubbed in your face.

If you're like me, you don't necessarily have anything against X-Day, but the truth is, it's the lull FOLLOWING Christmas that you really look forward to every year.

Whatever camp you're in, here was a batch of far too many Xmas songs & stories for you to 'enjoy'.

And as long as we're talking about Xmas X-cess, come back next week for a whole different batch of too much Ecchsmas.

Ho, ho, ho,

Thanks for stopping by!

Truth is, this set of tunes just kind of flowed out easily, finding it's own peaks and valleys along the way. I hope you enjoyed it.

When I assembled this particular hodge-podge of a show I thought I'd succumb even more fully to my whims than usual by including a lengthy piece by the great British singer/comedian Anna Russell.

Today, as I was putting finishing touches on this blog entry for the show I discovered that the incomparable Ms. Russell has just recently passed away at the age of 94 in Australia, where she'd been living since her retirement a mere three years ago.

Some folks could perhaps argue that as her best years of performing were well behind her, there's not much sense in crying now over her departure.
(I've weathered similar arguments regarding the deaths of other musicians, actors, etc, who hadn't contributed any new material in decades.)

Nevertheless, my feeling is that Anna Russell was one of the coolest treasures of the 20th century, and the world that now remains for the rest of us is just a little more diminished by her passing from this plane. Cheers, Anna.

Please investigate her work if you're unfamiliar. I hope you enjoyed the rest of this week's show as well.

Huh. What was going on here?

Okay, Let's see...

Several different takes on Cole Porter, and a buncha pieces praising the guitar.

A litle bit of acapella harmony and a small chunk of snot-flingin' '60's garage beat.

Whatever. Works for me.

How does the mind of a DJ work?

I've been putting together sets of music for many years now, and I don't have an answer.

Maybe it's too simple (or trivial) a process to require explanation.

On occasion (like this particular show) I'm at a loss to pinpoint the origins of the connections that lead from one piece of music to the next.

The concern that I'm beyond any reasonable understanding whether that flow of connections makes ANY LICK of sense to anyone besides me may be another matter entirely.

Do you 'get' it? Do you care if you don't?

- - Which is likely your cue: Drop me a line and say 'Like, WTF??' by clicking on that 'Email me' link over in that box to your right. Questions, suggestions, howdys, etceteras...

Bottom line: If you are one-tenth as entertained listening to my shows as I am concocting them, it's all worth it, regardless. I'm happy to let the mystery be.
Thanks for stopping by!

Never forget: At it's core, Rock and Roll is MEANT to be bad for you.

It can shake you up, frighten your parents, jar you from your routine, brighten your day, lift your spirits, expand your mind, and put a bump in your grind.

I found some rockin' beats to scatter liberally throughout this show. Found some other stuff, too, and had the usual barrel of monkeys fitting it all together.

Feel free to drop a line via the 'Email me' link o'er yonder. Say hey, ask a question, or leave a suggestion for a future show. Many thanks!

"We are all driven by an invisible whip. Some run, some have fun, some are hip, some tip, some dip, but we all must answer to the invisible whip."

- - Roland Kirk, 1969

I think perhaps you can make a guess about one or two of my invisible whips.

Go on ahead, drop me a line and tell me all about YOUR invisible whip by clicking on the 'Email me' link imbedded within that box to your right.

radio boise playlist for week of 9/25/06

At first I felt a bit puzzled by the very definite mood that began to dominate the selections forming this show. Now I'll chalk it up to the changing season, the shift in the air. The quiet buzz behind a blissful drowse. Angled shafts of sepiatone afternoon sunlight poking through dark wooden shutters to catch sparkling dust motes drifting through a cozy peaceful room.
- - And stuff like that.

Though often I'm not certain where inspiration, choices, and connections originate, one look at this week's playlist and I'm certain I owe a big shout out and an enormous hug to my old pal Snappy The Alligator.

As ever, if you've any questions about the music or the method of this madness, some input to offer for an upcoming show, or a yen to say hello, please plant your cursor onto that 'email me' link waiting somewhere to the right of this sentence.

"...EEEW! What are you DOING? Why does it have to sound like that? Your stuff is like, all OVER the place.
Can't you just play normal music - - ? Stick to one kind of thing I can recognize and just play that over and over? HELLO? Can't you just play the same safe music that I hear everywhere else? Some of these songs are kind of okay I guess, but a bunch them are way old or something. Like, by people who aren't even alive anymore. And not even American. That's weird. Why bother?

- - At this point I wouldn't know how, even if I were interested. I'm not trying to cop a cool, outsider-rebel attitude by saying that, I'm just here hoping to entertain and enlighten you as I entertain myself. Hope you've been finding something to enjoy in the music I program.

Welcome to my world. From my perspective the music all flows together just as it should and sounds quite jolly.

How about for you? Maybe it was that Summer heatwave?

radio boise playlist for week of 7/24/06

Another twisty-turvy assortment of tunes.

Some swamp-rootsy twang sprinkled liberally throughout, lots of cover tunes (no suprise, that) including a meandering diversion in the general vicinity of The Doors.

A couple of bands from Texas and a couple of bay area groups. Alt-klezmer from Orange County and everyone's favorite punk-zydeco band from Switzerland.

Oh, and Red Buttons has left us, so one of his tunes from the '50's.
